Hey, Sailor
This sexy, darkly funny, queer Billy Budd hijacks Melville's classic tale and slams it into the brutal streets of SF's Tenderloin. When Billy, a handsome young hustler, picks up cancer-ridden ex-Navy Captain Vere, he celebrates an easy trick: no touching involved. Vere's game seems benign -- to have Billy play sailor to his captain -- and he has the money to pay for it. Billy is man enough to pass as Vere's "handsome sailor" but dreams of getting a double mastectomy to be complete. At first it's the cash and the dreams of surgery that excite him. But Billy quickly becomes engrossed in a fantasy of war and manhood from which he may not escape alive.

Hey, Sailor was selected as First Runner Up in the 5th Annual Saints and Sinners Literary Festival Playwriting Competition, in New Orleans (May 2007).

George Epsilanty, Dazie' Rustin Grego, Minal Hajratwala, Lynn Lockwood, and Renate Henry Olaisen.

"a multimedia masterpiece--make that mistresspiece--bringing all the dark, erotic undercurrents of Melville's novel to the surface in this two-act, edge-of-your seat stage delight."
